The Trick

From The Lost Interview with Fons Elders and Michel Foucault:

I don't say the things I say because they are what I think, but rather I say them with the end in mind of self-destruction, precisely to make sure they are no longer what I think. To be really certain that from now on, outside of me, they are going to live a life or die in such a way that I will not have to recognize myself in them.

 

Growth is painful. It hurts, certainly.

The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts...
